2 claims filed in Prince's estate proceedings

As the media continues to question the cause of Prince's death, the names of his heirs are also unknown. Indeed, the music icon did not leave any trace of a will, so courts will have to distribute his assets in accordance with state intestacy laws. Potential heirs appear to be coming forward as well in order to make a claim on the musician's estate. Recently, two women filed motions saying that they are Prince's grandniece and niece in a bid to claim a portion of his massive estate.
